How dare you call me
You must login to vote
Say I'm just a slip of a girl
Like you want to try me on,
Say I'm clean and fragile as porcelain
Like you want dirty me--
Press your greedy fingers into my clean white shell.
You stroke the length of my spine
Like it's a delicate flower--
And I know you're just waiting to crush it.
You push-you push-you push-
A glorious explosion of pure ivory
Crumbling in, a spiral staircase
Spinning, and falling into infinity
Breaking into blackness
And I walk on unsure faltering stairsteps
Through the fallout,
And you... unscathed.
(He got away just fine--
the girl, she wasn't so lucky)
This slip of a Girl
(twisted like broken oleander)
She was not so lucky
--She sleeps in horrific blackness
--She dreams of peace she'll never know
But She lives--
If you call it such a thing--
In the fallout of her own beauty.
She falls softly down from towering pedastools...
